Embrace U became my daughter's home away from home. When she was discharged she was excited to have accomplished so much but sad at the same time because she genuinely loved going to Embrace U. Rachel made a connection with her that very few have been able to. She was able to love her and push her at the same time. I am still as her mother striving to be like Rachel! Embrace U is a loving environment and a safe place where you can take your kids to get the help that they need. From group therapy, medication check-ups to family sessions, they cover it all. The front desk staff is super friendly, the overall aesthetic is warm and inviting, and the most important thing is that it was a place that my daughter felt included, wanted and like she had a voice. I wish all kids could experience that feeling because that is what growing up should be like for our kids. Thank you Embrace U for all of your support and guidance throughout our journey with you. You all will hold a special place in our hearts, especially Miss Rachel ❤️

I will forever recommend Embrace U to friends and family. Their care is unparalleled, their attention to detail and diving head first to provide the support teens need makes this place truly special. Med management was never forced, but always educational. They took the time to make a special connection with my son which did not go unnoticed. The balance of group therapy and individual therapy (we love you Ms. Rachel!!!), allowed my teen to reach some pretty big mental health goals in the time he was there. I appreciated the parent educational sessions as well! Out family felt very supported during a heavy time. Cannot thank them enough!

How Our Brentwood Mental Health Clinic Works

Our evidence-based outpatient therapy programs are personalized to fit each participant and their family’s needs.

Our admissions team is available from 9-6 p.m., M-F, to listen to the participant’s needs and answer any and all questions. Call us today at (615) 656-8624 or use the form below to let us know who we can contact and best support you. We will reach out within 24 business hours.

Free Clinical Consultation

To help us create a personalized treatment plan that meets the participant’s needs, we’ll schedule a free clinical consultation after we learn more about the participant’s specific circumstances.

Psychiatric Assessment

A mental health provider will see the participant for an in-depth assessment prior to starting treatment.

Therapeutic Assignment

Based on the clinical consultation, we will assign a primary therapist specializing in the participant’s treatment needs. They will support the participant through their time with Embrace U, from admission to aftercare planning. The participant will join a therapeutic group based on their age.

Comprehensive Treatment

We believe comprehensive treatment plans are essential for sustainable healing. In addition to group therapy, the participant will be carefully placed in individual and family therapy sessions. Utilizing this multi-pronged treatment approach allows the participant to heal from the root cause, not just the symptoms.

Our goal is to prepare the participant and their family for sustainable healing right from the start, which is why we begin planning aftercare at the time of admission. The staff at our Brentwood mental health clinic work closely with individuals, families, and community partners to ensure our participants have the appropriate tools and resources to graduate from our program and build healthy, fulfilling lives.

Reaching out for help is the first step toward healing. We are available to guide and support the participant and their family throughout their journey. Call us today at (615) 656-8624 or submit our form below detailing how we can best provide support. We will reach out within 24 business hours.
